The blogosphere is a wonderful place full of amazing people and funny pictures of cats, amirite? Recently, I was given a nod by two awesome people , the great Keriann Greaney Martin (of Novel Beginnings fame) and Jenny Phresh (of The Party Pony fame) and given a blog award. Yaaaay! Thanks, guys! If you're a fan of hilarious and happy things, both Keri and Jenny's blog are the bomb diggity. Bomb diggity? Do people say that anymore? When I type my blogs, I verbally regress by at least ten years. Sorry.
Anyways, part of the blog award deal is that the recipient has to share 7 things about themselves and then pass the award along to a few others. As if my blog is not already a virtual armory of embarrassing things about myself, I present:
And I want to pass the love on to some FANTASTIC bloggers out there! This is, in no way, a comprehensive list (sorry for everyone I leave off!), but they are certainly rad and certainly deserving of the same love that I have for bats. Also, a plea: everyone else mentioned or not should do a "7 things about me" post too, because I'm just mildly voyeuristic like that.
Peggy of Peg-A-Leg: Quite possibly one of the kindest, coolest people I internet-ively know. And she's got a book that is for certain the NEXT BIG THING. Check her out so you can say "I knew her when!"
Adam of Author's Echo: Serious. You're probably already following him, right? RIGHT? A fellow writer/artist/geek, he blogs from the OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD. Unless you're in Thailand. Then he blogs RIGHT NEXT DOOR.
Susan of Ink Spells: So much awesome going on with Susan! Writing, mom-ery and an awesome newsletter, she is a resource extravaganza for writing and more. And she likes llamas. LLAMAS, people!
Beth of Food to the Rescue: Okay, full disclosure...this is my sister. And fellow co-president of HOTH (the club we made up as kids). But she also blogs restaurant reviews and delicious recipes, so there! Seriously, find and make her French Silk Pie recipe. It is Death by Delight. Murderously Good. Serially Mouthwatering. She is the Dexter of my Tastebuds.
Oh gosh! So many more!! Are you sick of me yet? I can't stop! (This is why I should not type out my blogs!)
Visit writer Jenn Johansson!

Oh man, were if not illegal in California, I'd send every single one of you a cuddly bat.
Know of anyone else awesome I forgot? Because I KNOW I did. Leave it in the comments (and chide me later)!
(You can also leave facts about bats. I always welcome those.)
